Fabulous July 4th week

  • 5 of 5

Our group loved this home! The living space is perfect for entertaining. The front yard was ideal for a July 4th BBQ and watching the fireworks across the bay. Sign us up for next year Linda!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house with an awesome bay view with beautiful sunsets. The owner Linda is wonderful to

work with. The house was very clean and the property outside is well-maintained. We would highly recommend this beach house to anyone. We look forward to going back again next

Perfect Surf City house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and four children just finished our second stay at this Surf City house (last year, 2014, was our first time here). This house is great! It is literally across the street from the Bay, so if you get tired of the beach, or if you have small children who may be intimidated by the ocean water, you can simply walk across the street and enjoy the calm waters of the Bay. Of course, the beach is a short walk – a couple of blocks – away. The house itself has everything we needed – from a washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher and large refrigerator (with a large freezer) to an eat-in dining area, three bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms and a (very clean) outdoor shower - the house itself is clean and well maintained also. There are more than enough plates, utensils, pots and pans for cooking in the kitchen. Coffeemaker and teapot are essential for us, and this house has them both. There are six of us (with the children) and we can easily go four or five full meals before we have to run the dishwasher because the kitchen is stocked so well. The ”sitting room” in the front of the house is really nice because you can watch the sun set on the Bay while sitting in the house – you don’t even have to leave the house and walk across the street to the Bay to see the sun set! There is a large outdoor gas grill, also. The six beach towels provided for use, in addition to the beach chairs and caddy, are also a nice touch. There are restaurants, ice cream shops, mini-golf courses, a large CVS drug store, etc. all within close proximity of the house. Central a/c keeps the house nice and cool.

The owner, Linda, is quick with a response to any need or question we may have – she is extremely pleasant and provided outstanding service. We vacation for a week every year at LBI and can’t see any reason why we would ever rent another house – this house is perfect, especially if you have children (or even if you do not). I would highly recommend this house.

Very spacious with a great view of the bay

  • 5 of 5

The property had lots of room with 3 bathrooms, a decent kitchen, and living room area. Enough to be comfortable for a family with guests. The view of the bay from the front porch is great for sunsets and the beach, shops + restaurants are only a four block walk away. There's also a nice park across the street for younger children.

A perfect week in a perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent an absolutely fabulous week in Surf City at this gem of a house! It is really roomy - the 6 of us all had plenty of space. The kitchen was very well stocked, the washer/dryer worked great, the outdoor shower was very handy. The owner was incredibly responsive when we needed to refill the gas for the grill.

The bathrooms were clean, bedrooms were roomy and the beds were all comfortable.

The house met the description and the location could not have worked out better for us. Being able to utilize the guarded bay beach was a plus for our smaller kids. We enjoyed all the local restaurants, shopping, the playground and the local library, all within walking distance.

And of course the nightly sunset across the street was beautiful!

We would recommend this to family and friends, but hopefully not for the week we plan on coming back next year!

A time to be thankful for

  • 4 of 5

A Thanksgiving celebration at the beach. What could be more relaxing? A clean, well-equipped kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a Thanksgiving meal that was enjoyed with a beautiful sunset as the backdrop. The next day was filled with long walks on the beach ... and sitting and reading, while looking out over the bay.

This is a great place to bring your family, across from the bay and just blocks from the ocean. A relaxed, homelike atmosphere that really lets you sit back and let all your worries drift away.
